vacation rental description

Tucked in a small village in the middle of the rainforest you will find Villa Millon. This home away from home is a beautiful treasure, hidden in the midst of the tropical jungle. Spacious and comfortable, this modern, new home lends itself to enhance the nature surrounding it. Built with floor to ceiling windows, for 180 degree view, you can see the gorgeous nature and Majestic Volcano from almost everywhere in the house. The view will take your breath away!

The region of Arenal, Costa Rica centers itself around Lake Arenal and the Arenal Volcano. Located approximately 14 miles outside of La Fortuna, a popular tourist town, the charming village of El Castillo awaits you with everything you need to enjoy luxury and relaxation and still see the “real” Costa Rica. Although, tucked away and private, Castillo is also home to The Butterfly Conservatory, Snake Zoo, The National Park, Arenal 1968, and a diverse selection restaurants. If action and adventure is what you are looking for, Sky Trek, the largest zip line in Costa Rica as well as the hanging bridges, are located right here in our village! Let's not leave out the scenic waterfalls to be seen from horseback, or the kayaking on the lake. There is also repelling and many organized nature hikes and tours that center around the volcano. This tiny village is a place to be seen! When you leave the fast pace of tourism and stumble upon this beautiful countryside, it will steal your heart. You haven't seen Arenal unless you pay a visit to El Castillo! Ask us and we will be happy to book all of your events at no cost to you!!

The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms accommodating a King, a Queen, and two twin beds that are easily transformed into a Kingif necessary, with our comfortable memory foam topper. The living area is large and spacious with a full sofa, loveseat and chair as well as satellite TV, a flat screen television , DVD player and high speed wireless internet. The kitchen if fully equipped with everything needed to cook for your family or entertain guests. Centered in the spacious kitchen/great room is an L shaped bar for you relax and enjoy the view of the Volcano while having cocktails or just hanging out to be together in the cooking experience. If it is a sit down meal you prefer, then you will enjoy the beautiful custom made dining table that accomodates 6.

After a wonderful night's sleep in the comfort of custom made beds and orthopedic mattresses, you will awaken to the singing of hundreds of different species of birds, and in the background, as if that weren't enough, the howler monkeys sing their own morning song. Just a short walk across the street, you will find a beautiful river for your swimming enjoyment and there are several local waterfalls that can be accessed by horse or hike. A bird watchers' paradise and a relaxing retreat for nature lovers young and old, Villa Millon is the place to go when you want to get off of the beaten path of tourism and explore.

traveler reviews for this lake arenal house rental

Great location for the area

Review submitted: February 18, 2013   Date of arrival: January 28, 2013

We enjoyed this property very much as it was a great location for the activities we were interested in.The Sky Trek Zip Line experience was terrific, the butterfly tour included a nature hike, We loved eating at the local "soda" and found a wonderful working farm for a great meal experience. There are many very good restraunts close by, (we enjoyed the Fusion) Next door to the propery is a couple that have beautiful art and crafts shop alone with some very good baked cookeis!! The village of El Castilla was just what we were hoping for, the property was comfortable and quite and clean. The on site manager for the home was very helpful to us.

Thanks to Nancy and Julia for their hospitality!! We certainly hope to be back...
This home is beautiful and is located in a magnificent setting on the hill in El Castillo. The home affords front row viewing of Arenal, is surrounded by excellent neighbors and is within reasonable walking distance to the Butterfly Conservatory and town. Although we never saw any howler monkeys on the property we could hear them close by every morning and evening. We had the good fortune of visiting with a number of neighbors and neighborhood children and they were all warm, friendly and fun!! We thoroughly enjoyed the daily pace of the village and watching the cows commute to and from their pastures. Thanks to Julia's husband, Lilander, for the excellent horseback ride and for allowing our two young children to visit with his horses and dogs! We prepared most of our meals in house and the amenities were just what we needed.The washing machine was an added bonus. We did enjoy wholesome and yummy bread, cookies and sandwiches from Thomas and Hanna at La Gavilana which is located just down the street. The local Soda was great and the kids really enjoyed Pizza Johns. There are so many fun hikes and activities in the area that we hope to return to see more... Thanks again for a wonderful base of operations!!

Owners response: Thanks so much for your kind words. I am so glad that you enjoyed our special spot in the rainforest and I hope you will return someday soon!

volcano view

Review submitted: January 14, 2013   Date of arrival: December 28, 2012

The house is lovely - high ceilings, lots of hard wood, floor to ceiling windows. But it's really really lovely when the clouds clear and you can actually see Arenal (which was three days after we arrived). Spectacular.

This house also has the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. And blackout shades. I could have stayed in bed all day.

But no, there's too much to do! While staying in El Castillo (for a week), we went hiking at Arenal 1968 and at Arenal Observatory Lodge, we took a day trip to Cano Negro, we took my small children to the excellent nearby Butterfly Conservatory and we spent two days soaking at The Springs Resort & Spa (highly recommended). The 9km gravel road to El Castillo is NOT an easy drive (very bumpy) but it's worth it!

It's a minor point, but you can't actually see the volcano from anywhere in the house, as stated in the description. But it is on full display in the living area - just not the bedrooms.

Also, the dining room table would seat six if there were six chairs, but there are only four chairs. Our family of six had to use a rocking chair and an end table (!) when we dined together.

We felt like the house has a few issues that still need to be resolved (understanding that it is new on the rental market). But Nancy was very responsive about everything that came up while we were staying there.

Owners response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable in the house. I appreciate your suggestion about getting more chairs. We have the breakfast bar with 4 chairs as well as the dining table with 4 chairs, so we assumed that seating for 8 would be sufficient, but are now planning to add 2 more chairs to the dining table.

Nancy
